…Remember at the bottom a list of other posts about Biomimicry
Biomimicry is the practice of
learning from and mimicking Nature
to solve human problems.
“Biomimicry is no longer just a new way to see and value nature, it is also our path to survival.”– Janine Benyus, co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute

Here is one of them: change:WATER Labs
Chang:WATER Labs (cWL)’s evaporative approach to “flushing” toilets mimics how plants use evapotranspiration to pull moisture from soil, releasing it as pure molecular water through stomata on their leaves. Inspired by nature’s recycling of waste into energy, cWL’s bio-battery uses symbiotic microbes to collaboratively consume and convert urine into electricity.
A new way to dispose of human waste – by evaporating out the water! This technology emerged from work done for NASA on wastewater recycling on the International Space Station, and is now being deployed in off-grid rural communities and refugee communities. Cambridge, MA
HOW OUR TOILET WORKS
>>>Our low-cost, portable toilets use a simple membrane to rapidly evaporate 95% of sewage without using any type of energy. This innovative technology provides homes with a working toilet, without the need for power or plumbing.
>>>The toilet is straightforward in design, meaning it can be adapted easily and is incredibly cost-effective to produce.
>>>The compact, contained, stand alone units can be dropped into any space quickly, and the ‘self-flushing’ technology works while being completely waterless and environmentally safe.
